RSPB and Strumpshaw Fen

 

Year 5 had the fantastic opportunity to have had the wildlife staff from Strumpshaw Fen visit them at school. They introduced the children to a variety of methods on how to identify local wildlife and how to be respectful to their environment. The next day following the workshop Year 5 were invited to spend the day at Strumpshaw Fen to put their new skills into action. They spent the whole day outside in the woodland exploring the amazing natural surroundings whist undertaking a variety of activities. The leaders of the RSPB activities offered the children the chance to pond dip, minibeast hunt and to create some woodland art.

Autumn 2

 

I hope you all enjoyed the break. This half term, our topic is 'Around the World'. We will be studying 'The Explorer' by Katherine Rundell and through this and our topic lessons, will be learning about Brazil and the Amazon Rainforest. We will be coming a region of Brazil to a region of the UK. Year 5 will be holding a parent cafe on Friday 29th of November. P.E will still be on Tuesdays and Fridays but ensure kit is always in school. Please keep art aprons in school also. 

 

 

Happy Half Term!

There will be no extra homework over the week off. However, please make sure you are reading as much as possible, practising your spellings and also practising your multiplication and division facts. Have a lovely week off! :)

Tuesday 15th October 2019

 

Today, we had a visit from an archaeologist for our topic ‘Once Upon a Time’. We looked at different pieces of evidence and lots of artefacts with stories attached. We were able to work out lots about the different people in the stories using historical facts and objects. We learnt about how people used to live, what they used to do as jobs and why people carried particular objects. A big thank you to Graeme for an interesting afternoon! :)

Homework for the 17.10.19

We are coming to the end of our Egyptian topic. I would like you to write at least 3 paragraphs about different things we have learnt about the Egyptians. You could include what we saw and did at the Castle Museum to help you. You may want to write about daily life in Egypt, the different pharaohs (including Tutankhamun), mummification, the gods, the pyramids and tombs or about hieroglyphics. I will be using this piece of writing to see how much you have learnt and remembered. If you’d like to include pictures, feel free to do so. You can type or write by hand but it must be your own work.

We had lots of fun visiting the Castle Museum to learn more about the Ancient Egyptians. We participated in four activities and moved around in a carousel. We created our own Egyptian collars, explored daily life, investigated artefacts and were involved in mummifying a person. A big thank you to our staff and parent helpers!

Welcome to Year 5 :)

 

I hope you have all had a lovely summer break. Attached below is a letter regarding homework and P.E and our first curriculum topic map. This half term, the theme is 'Once Upon a Time'. We will be looking at fairy tales and will explore the Ancient Egypt civilisation  in both English and Topic. Place value will be our first topic within Maths and then we will move onto addition and subtraction. Spellings, homework, photos and important notices will be put on here weekly. However, if you have any questions about anything, please do not hesitate in emailing or catching me in the playground. 

 

Thank you,

 

Miss Light :)
